Episode 78 – Duck Butts Meadery – Carmel and Jonathan Senatz

This episode features Carmel and Jonathan Senatz of Duck Butts Meadery.

It started like many other passions… with a home brew beer kit.  Which remained in the box, in the basement, for over 6 years.  Jonathan observed that the idea of home brewing beer presented as being very complicated.  This didn’t appeal to him.  He and Carmel became inspired by a visit to Savannah Bee Company.  From there they began to dream about making mead.  The equipment in the kit would be perfect for what they needed to get started.  Covid provided an opportunity to begin experimenting.  Forced to stay home, they took the time to make their own mead.  They set off on their “maiden voyage”.  We discuss where they are now with their hobby and passion.  We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for this fledgling meadery.

Episode 75 – Olde Bedford Brewing Company – Dave and Mary Heller

This episode features Dave Heller and Mary Heller of Olde Bedford Brewing Company.

Mary purchased Dave a Mr. Beer Kit.  The first foray into home brewing was a success.  To Mary’s surprise, it quickly developed from a hobby into an addiction to home brew.    She thought that this would entertain Dave for a couple of months and he would move on.  She had no idea that 7 years later that all of it would turn into a business.  Olde Bedford Brewing is their “retirement job”.  They even grow their own hops on their ranch.  Quickly they developed followers of their beer and the brewery began to blossom from there.  Passion drives the grain to glass philosophy.  “Join the Whiskey Rebellion… drink beer” is their slogan.  We had a tremendous time sitting down with Dave and Mary on the podcast.  We learned so much about the history of Bedford, beer and the brewery.  Take a side trip off the PA Turnpike and go visit them.  You’ll be glad that you did.

Mike received a home brewing kit as a birthday present.  The pale ale is what got things started over 14 years ago.  The science and the creativity part hooked Mike in.  Family and friends started clamoring for their brew.  Then they began brewing for big events.  The hobby turned into homebrew competitions and successful accolades.  Kristen and Mike then rolled up their sleeves, kept their day jobs and worked their butts off for the first year.  Moo-Duck is a community meeting place where friends can gather and enjoy sensational beer.

Episode 40 – Brewscuits – Petrina DiOrio and Kimberly Triol

This episode features Petrina DiOrio and Kimberly Triol of Brewsquits.   “If it’s not fun then why do it?”  Kim and Petrina rescue dogs, foster dogs and take care of military family dogs. They are also home brewers.  After brewing up a batch they took their spent grains outside for composting.  This time all of the dogs started devouring it.  They considered what they witnessed and said why not make a dog biscuit.  They started from their home with a little oven.  What they make is deliciousness for dogs.  All Natural… Hand Made… No Preservatives… All made from spent grains from local breweries and distilleries.  They are certainly having fun and doing it for good causes too.
